    It is hard to understand why a Microsoft Product doesn´t support even the most used fonts of their other products like Word. I think this is a basic demand of a lot of people. Thanks.

    This is an absolute must have! In my company, corporate is hell bent on using an in-house font and until such functionality is fully supported in Power BI, there's no way it can be widely adopted for any kind of internal reporting (at least when it comes to higher management).

    Custom JSON themes are a start, but there's no way to change a default font for a text-box, so most reports end up looking quite bad.

    This would be very useful for my workplace : we use a certain corporate font that is not currently supported by PBI. We have tried to incorporate it in a JSON file and use it though a custom report theme file, but it does not seem to work. A wider range of supported fonts supported by custom report themes would be extremely useful.

    We really need this, as well as ability to set the theme in the MSI for Power BI Desktop so that our users are all starting with the correct brand colors and fonts.

    It is important to have the ability to import fonts to use in Power BI.
    Whilst we can match themes to a Business template we still cannot match fonts

    When will support be added so we can use fonts available in word? Or will there be support and explanations for how to use google fonts through themes?

    yes please add support for custom fonts for all objects so we can comply to corporate standards

    I want to be able to use whichever font is installed on my machine. How is this not an option?

    Also please ensure that textbox font sizes match font sizes used in any visuals. At the moment one font size is not the same across these two options.
